Green America's Fair Trade Alliance

The Fair Trade Alliance is a group of individual consumers, local organizations, and businesses committed to advancing the Fair Trade movement and increasing the amount of Fair Trade products sold in North America. Across the US, workplaces, community organizations, schools, yoga studios, peace centers, faith congregations, and more are pledging to make Fair Trade products a part of their meetings, events, and social gatherings . . . and working to educate others about Fair Trade.

Members of the Fair Trade Alliance include:

... a union local in Wisconsin
